Dear Comic Art Fan,

This month's sketchbook theme is dedicated to DC Comics. CAF founder Bill Cox says, "I've never been much of a DC Man myself. Make Mine Marvel has always been my motto. So I've decided to give everyone the chance to show me what makes DC so special this month! Have at it!" So go ahead and tout the virtues of the "Distinquished Competition."

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
 
I live in Barcelona, Spain and I have collected comic books since I was a child. During my adolescence I left comics for a time, but when I discovered the comics of Frank Miller, Alan Moore, and Neil Gaiman I was irredeemably hooked. I only own art from comic series that I like.
 
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite? 
 
Without a doubt the Sandman #44 page 5 of Jill Thompson and Neil Gaiman. Why? Because I never thought I would someday obtain an original of this wonderful series, which believe is one of the best works that has been done in the history of comics.
 
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
 
I began in 2007 when I discovered some art sale websites on the Internet. Even though I began a short time ago, I recognize that I have profited quite well. My first piece was a page of Planetary by John Cassaday.
 
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
 
I usually frame my favorite originals and I keep the rest of them in special bags for comic art or portfolios. I think it is very important to preserve art because it doesn't belong to me; I simply have the good luck to enjoy it right now and one day it will move on to someone else.
 
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
 
-an Elektra: Assassin page by Miller-Sienkiewicz
-a Swamp Thing page by Moore-Veitch-Totleben
-a Daredevil: Born Again page by Miller-Mazzucchelli
-a Concrete page by Paul Chadwick
-And one DMZ commission from Nathan Fox that I hope to get this year.
